Nepal - Community Project Travel

From beginning to the end the trip was fantastic. We had two wonderful guides with completely different strengths. Both leaders were very professional and caring. The trek was magnificent. It was well worth climbing to see the wonderful views once we reached Namche Bazaar. Our guides were wonderful. They did a great job of looking out for us on the trek and a fantastic job of looking after us in camp. The food was amazing. The porters were also really friendly and helpful and deserve medals for lugging all our gear around.


The local villagers at Jumbesi made us feel really welcome and put on a special dinner at the monastery. We were overwhelmed with the welcome they gave us and also the thank you. We had a great bunch of other trekkers on the trip and we were all matched up well with our room mates. We were very lucky with the weather and had day after day of awe inspiring views. There is not one bad thing that I can say about the trip. The trip was a life changing experience and I would love to do it all again. I would like to thank everyone involved. And I hope that one day I get to travel again with World Expeditions.

Best of the West

This spectacular journey combines day walks in the most stunning national parks of the West, as well as the dynamic American cities of San Francisco and Las Vegas. We explore the trails of Yosemite to view immense glacier carved walls of soaring granite, such as the famous Half Dome, as well as the world's biggest trees, the ancient Sequoias. At Mammoth we enjoy the hot springs and following a short visit to Death Valley we continue to the magnificent Grand Canyon. Travelling north we visit Monument Valley, and this trip would not be complete without seeing Utah's incredible Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park. Three states and six National Parks later, we conclude this amazing journey in Las Vegas or San Francisco depending on the departure you choose.
